Hecklers can be heard loud and clear.
The hilariously awful cover of "The Stroke" notwithstanding, this is a poor recording, even for MiniDisc. Tony clearly hasn't listened to the recording (or at least not all of it). Hecklers are clearly heard shouting "You suck!", "F--k you!" and everything in between -- from both sides. Early in the set, some mouthbreather actually asks the taper if they're recording. There's a lot of talking and "woo-hoo"-ing (which is to be expected in a concert recording) but the microphone positioning is piss-poor (and seems to move slightly several times) and the recording has ATRAC's stinky feet all over it.
I only give it a "3" because I feel the taper's "crappy gear" pain. I recorded with an MS907 and MZR700 for a year or two. That gear made for a really small kit but it rarely produced "excellent" recordings (thanks mostly to the microphone, I believe). Bleah.

The sound quality is definately B but there are no loud talkers / screamers nearby. The taper just probably was far back. the recording still is definately listenable and nice, just not as 'clear' as one would hope. The song selection is fun. "The Stroke" is a great cover for them at the end of the show. A fun show to stream and listen to!
